Voting Information & Absentee Ballots

Voter Registration


You must be registered to vote in the town of your residence. We work with the Ledyard Registrars of Voters (860-464-3252) to issue the form to register to vote. We have the forms available in our office. When completed we forward the form to the Registrars for processing. You may complete the form in a few minutes here in our office, take it home for completion, or print the form from the link below and return it by mail. Mail-in forms may be used to register as a new voter, change your address within Ledyard, change or register with a political party, or change your name.
The forms are also available from the Registrars, and online (PDFs).

Primaries


Please note that Connecticut law states that the voter must be a member of the political party holding a primary in order to vote in that primary. Voters who are not members of a political party are considered “unaffiliated” and eligible to vote in general elections only.
